Oftentimes we hear people say that being green takes a lot of green from your wallet. With our newest WeatherBug mobile app release you now not only have unmatched insights to your energy usage, but accessing this information is completely free.
We’re happy to announce that today we’ve released our newly updated WeatherBug app. In this update, we’re using big weather data in a new, environmentally friendly, and cost effective way. Users will still be able to Know Before™ with real-time, hyper-local weather and lightning information and now users will have mobile access to WeatherBug Home. The innovative WeatherBug Home area of the app allows you to access predictive energy usage and costs by linking our big weather data with your connected thermostat and utility meter data.
But what does weather data have to do with saving energy and money? 50% of a home’s energy usage is impacted by the weather. Within the new WeatherBug Home area of the app, consumers will be able to control, analyze, and optimize your energy usage and costs, all from the palm of your hand. We are able to deliver these unprecedented insights by working with data from our smart home device launch partners: Honeywell, Nest, and SmartThings and applying utility data from Accelerated Innovations’ MyMeter.
Simply connect your smart home device and your utility provider through our app and you will gain access to energy efficiency information you never imagined. WeatherBug Home extends beyond powering the smart home to actually empowering a smart consumer.
